Artist’s impression of the situation. Warning: artist is insanely creative!

 

Imagine you are standing near a railway track, which eventually splits into two separate tracks, track 1 and track 2 after a junction. A train is arriving at high speed and is showing no signs of stopping. To your utter horror, you find your son strapped onto track 1and your grand-son onto track 2, immediately after the junction. You have by your side the switch which will decide the path that the train will take after passing past the junction. If you don’t press the switch, the train will pass through track1, killing your son. If you press the switch, the train will pass through track2 killing your grandson. Your son is yelling at you to save your grandson, but you can’t let your own son get ran over by train, right? Now it is up to you to decide who should die. Time is running out and you must take a decision.
